Impatient Woman Destroys $1,600 Worth of Booze from NY Liquor Store


By Kelli Sutterman

NYACK, N.Y. (AP) — Police say a woman at a suburban New York liquor store swept her arm through a shelf of high-priced booze, smashing $1,600 worth onto the floor because she felt a clerk was taking too long to wait on her.

Surveillance video from the Rite-Buy Wines & Liquors in Nyack shows the woman sticking out her right arm as she strides out of the store Feb. 23. She knocks dozens of bottles from a waist-high shelf, breaking many of them.

The owner's son, Chris Giacopelli (jahk-uh-PEHL'-ee), says the damage included bottles of pricey Johnnie Walker Blue Label scotch.

Clarkstown Sgt. Harry Baumann said Friday that the woman has turned herself in. She is due in court March 16 but has not been charged.
